Cinema Tuesdays {Two For The Road}

Picture 8

I'm sure you've all seen this 1967 movie by now. Just to refresh your memory of the plot, it is the non-linear tale of Mark and Joanna's relationship from their meeting to near-divorce as they make the same journey to the south of France. I've organized the screencaps chronologically to show the evolution of AH's wardrobe by Givenchy.

I think this is the cutest scene in the movie.

Picture 92

What I really like is that aside from the changing fashions, AH's eye makeup and Albert Finney's hair being fluffier in the Fifties, no attempt was made to alter the age of the stars.

I love Eleanor Bron! She and Howie perfect as the couple you'd hate to be stuck in the car with and they both oblivious to the fact that they've turned Ruthie into a spoiled brat.

Flowered bathing caps are always in style. I think this is the only movie where you see AH in a swimsuit.

If I ever become rich, I'm going to get a pool, just so that I can get a statue where my butler can plug the phone in.

Picture 205

One of the great things about this movie is that it's avant-garde meets mainstream. So you get to see really cool shots like this along with jump-cuts and other New Wave tricks, but it's in a major movie with two big stars. Hollywood was changing, baby.

"What kind of people just sit in a restaurant and don't say one word to each other?"
"Married people"
